    Default QLD French Car Clubs Day Cruise

    On Sunday, September 12th a run from Anzac Park, Toowong to Bribie Island has been organised by the people that run the Grand Display of French Cars. Arrive at the park at 9am. The run is free to all french car owners.

    The run goes through Samford, (usually with a stop there), up Mt Mee, and through Caboolture to Bribie. Lunch is in the park to the left just after crossing the bridge. There are fish and chip shops and the like, or bring your own. Usually get about 50-60 cars. It is quite a sight watching the 2CVs lean around the mountain roads.

    Nobody interested in the day run? Simple instructions, no questions, just a run in the country with a group of froggies.
    I admit, probably not as fast as other runs I have been on, but fun all the same.

    I'll be up for it, got the Advanced Level Sprint Day out at QR the day before though. I'll leave my semi slicks on the car for it.

    I turned up, but didn't go on the cruise

    Was a pretty poor turnout.

    Prob about 15 or so cars.

    D'oh, I rocked up late and high tailed it to Samford where I met up with the group there. There were a few 206 GTi's and one other GTi180 there so I was having some fun with them. I won't forget about the left kink just after the crest of a hill along Sellens Road though. Wasn't as many as last year but still had a good day. Only got a few photos, too lazy to drag them off the camera but will post some up soon.

    I was torn between the Beaudesert Swap and the run. Went to the swap and found very little. I only bought a few cheap tools.

    Why don't you come up for a track day instead?

    Speaking of track days, managed a 1:05.490 in the Advanced Level Sprint, won the class on the day as well. Wasn't that hard considering there was a total of 36 cars out on the day (four in the A2 class). Was happy with the times I did however. I'll grab the few photos from the cruise off the camera sometime this week and put them up.
